Are you experiencing problems with the magnets on your Surface?

Now that the Surface has been out for about a month, how is yours holding up? According to a report on our forums with a some video evidence, it looks like the magnets in the Surface for the TouchCover might be a bit too strong. Apparently they’re pulling the magnet and glue that holds the magnet on the TouchCover out, leaving a mess of a $120 accessory. You can see the video below to see what we’re talking about.

Have you experienced any of these problems? Let us know in the comments.

    Not so far. But then again just because their magnets doesnt mean I just rip mine out when I unplug.

    how so? Because it hasn’t happened for the 3 days you have had yours? DO you even have one? It’s like the douchebag iSheep who claim people weren’t having issues with their iCrap4, 4s and 5 when it first came out.
